About gsvalentine

I am a 35-year-old guy, who lives in Stamford, in the East Midlands, England. I was born in Chorley, Lancashire, England, on the 29th September 1979. Most people don’t believe me that I was born in England due to my strong Scottish accent. My star sign is Libra. I am 5’9” tall, 30″ waist, with blonde hair, which is sometimes short, sometimes long. I have light brown eyes. Which most people think are very sexy. I just don’t see it, myself.

Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 bike is back on the road!

Happy days! At long, long last, I’ve got my Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 bike fixed and fully serviced! I broke one of the cranks, way back in July of last year! So just need to put a new pedal on him and he’s good to go!!

Since face coverings in England’s shops to be compulsory from 24 July, do you think I could get way with wearing my S10 gas mask in public?

Updated VeloViewer map : 12-July-2020

That’s me just updated the VeloViewer map. I’ve filled in a good number of new squares, since I last posted the map on 6th July 2020. Cycled all the way out to the A47 and also into Northamptonshire for the first time this year!

Second 40+ mile cycle of 2020

Happy days! Just back in from my second 40+ mile cycle of 2020! Well in fact, my longest cycle of the year, I did 43.68 miles. Which I’am more than pleased with! Next goal is to do 50 miles, so I can say I’ve done my first half century ride of the year.

Only bad thing about the cycle, was getting my first puncture of the year! Took me like 30 minutes, just getting the tire off the wheel! It was like, it had been glued on! Which of course, it wasn’t! Just not the tire off, in well over a year! Just so glad it was the front tire.

You can check out today’s route over at www.strava.com/activities/374729166

Here are some photos from the cycle, please, please, do post some comments! 🙂
